When it rains, it pours: Florida suffers decommitment from elite in-state prospect Bryce Langston
Gator fans searching for some good news following the departure of freshman defensive back and former high school All-American Chris Steele won’t find it in recruiting.
That’s because one of the nation’s top prospects for the 2021 recruiting class just decommitted from Florida. Bryce Langston could not have picked a worse time to decommit from Dan Mullen’s program, but be that as it may, Florida’s 2021 recruiting class is now down to four pledges following this news.
The 6-foot-2, 237-pound Ocala native is rated as the No. 2 overall prospect from Florida and the No. 10 prospect nationally by 247Sports. Langston originally committed to the Gators in early December.
“After the long days and night of me thinking about the recruiting process, talking to my parents and coaches, I will announce that I will be decommitting from the University of Florida. Respect my decision,” Langston tweeted out with the note that his recruitment is 100 percent open.
Langston has recently seen his recruitment pick up with visits to Florida State and scholarship offers from Auburn and Tennessee in recent weeks.
